ing Homecoming activities in October. 

Recipients of the Distinguished Alumni awards are 
Barbara J. Wagner Schwehr, a former UW System 
administrator, and William J. "Bud" Micheels, former 
Chancellor at Stout. The two Menomonie natives were 
cited for their outstanding contributions to their profes- 
sion, community and to the university. 

Schwehr '44 who resides in Madison, has had a 
variety of jobs, beginning with teaching home 
economics in Escanaba, Mich. She was a payroll officer 
at an army base in Alabama, a vocational adult educa- 
tion home economics teacher in West Bend and 
Madison, and for 10 years, a part-time facilities research

tion and the old Wisconsin State University System. 
Prior to retirement, she served for 14 years as a senior 
staff associate in the division of facilities/campus plan- 
ning and capital budgeting for the UW System. As 
senior staff associate, her major areas of responsibility 
were in the development of procedures for measuring 
needs for academic physical facilities for the UW 
System. This included guideline development, com-

management procedures, evaluation and documenting 
biennial capital budget project requests for the UW 

While working in the physical facilities area, she was

field. She also served on many UW System Administra- 

tion and' statewide committees. She chaired the System 
Administration Resource Committee on the Status of 
Women. She also directed the 1983 conference for the

During Micheels' term as Chancellor, 14 new 
graduate and undergraduate majors were added at 
Stout. A number of new facilities, including the 
Applied Arts building, were planned to accommodate 
the expanding enrollment and programs Micheels saw 
as crucial to maintaining a progressive educational 

system. He was author and co-author of several books

pastoral awards — the Friends Fellow in '75 and '76, 
the Campbell Award in 1976, and the James Appelby 
Book Award in 1977. 

The Lutheran campus pastor is the Reverend Tim 
Megorden. A native of Crookston, Minn., he received 
his divinity degree in 1973 from Luther Theological 

Seminary in St. Paul, Minn., and received his M.S. in 
marriage and family therapy from Stout. He served as 
associate pastor of Peace Lutheran Church in Platteville 
before joining the Ministry in 1977.

Stout's campus radio station, 
WVSS, had a new sound this past 
summer thanks to the efforts of ten 
Menomonie High School students, 
who operated the facility in 
exchange for one college credit. 

Arthur Matthews, general mana- 
ger of the station, WVSS, said the 
students were enrolled in a "radio 
practicum course" at the university. 
Matthews explained that an FCC 
requirement that the station be on 
the air during the summer has 
resulted in a "practical learning ex- 
perience" for the students. "We 
have to be on the air at least 36 
hours a week when school is in ses- 
sion," Matthews said. "In the past 
we were playing hour-long tapes. 
This will give us a better sound and 
let the kids experience a real-life 

Each student had an "air shift" of 
three hours per week for eight 
weeks and an additional hour a 
week of "maintenance" such as fil- 
ing records. They were evaluated 
three times during the summer. 
"We're running it like a job," 
Matthews said. "We're making it a 
very realistic situation. You're 
expected to be there at a certain 
time and to do certain things." 

Students in the practicum earned 
a theoretical salary of $10 per hour 
in what Matthews jokingly 
describes as "funny money." They 
also "earn" $50 per evaluation. The 
theoretical money then was used to 
"purchase" a grade for the course, 

which means more money buys a 
higher mark. 

Tom Slupe of Menomonie High 
School worked with Matthews on 
the project which is a continuation 
of a high school program that nor- 
mally airs Saturday. A primary dif- 
ference, however, is that students 
in the summer 'class did not select 
their own music; they had to follow 
specific formats established by sta- 
tion management. 

Matthews said that students also 
received tougher training standards. 
"There are two kinds of radio: 
announcer and personality," 
Matthews said. "We are not allow- 
ing them to do personality radio." 

Matthews said he hopes the prac- 
ticum will show the students what 
it is really like to work in radio 
broadcasting. "We're not making it 
glamorous," he said. "Radio and 
TV are really not glamorous, it's 
tough work. We want them to find 
what it is really like out there." 
Matthews stressed that the purpose 
of the project was not to train 
students as radio announcers. "It is 
intended to train them for a job," 
he said. "Some may become 
announcers, but there are practically 
no jobs within the field." 

Matthews sees the practicum as a 
means of "bridging the gap 
between the campus and the com- 
munity" and at the same time giv- 
ing the students a "realistic job 
experience. "□

People You Know 

By Pat Reisinger, 
Alumni Director 

This will be the last "people you know" 
written from an office in the Administration 
building on the corner of Main and Broad- 
way. Sometime in November, the Alumni 
and Foundation offices will be relocated to 
the Louis Smith Tainter Home (formerly 
Eichelberger). The new location will provide 
easy access to visiting alumni who couldn't 
find us on campus, and provide reception 
and meeting rooms for small university and 
community groups. For all of you alumni 
who lived there while it was Eichelberger 
Hall, you'll enjoy seeing the refurbished 
home, and for alumni who walked by the 
skeleton of a home during the past few 
years, come see us when you visit 

Alumni have been gathering all over the 
country. In May, the Kentucky alumni met in 
Louisville. Lew Berger '36 and Nancy Smith 
Kupper '70 were responsible for the get- 
together and program at the Executive Inn. 
Bob Dahlke, director of. Placement, Dave 
Williams, Foundation director, and 
Chancellor Robert Swanson '49 were on 
hand to greet area alumni. Awards were 
made to several graduates: Lou Rogge '28 
earliest graduate; Nancy Smith Kupper '70, 
most recent graduate; Jack Bongey '49, Cin- 
cinnati, farthest from home and most grand- 
children; and Don Hamilton '71 birthday 

Seventy-six graduates, spouses and friends 
attended the golden anniversary celebration 
for the classes of 1900-34 on the Stout cam- 
pus. Tours of campus buildings, the Mabel 
Tainter Theater, the Wilson Museum, a city 
bus tour and lunch with the Chancellor were 
part of the day's program for all of the 
graduates of the Stout Institute prior to 1935. 
They all received a memory book and a Stout 
charm or tie-tac as a special momento of the 
anniversary. Special gifts were awarded to 
several alumni who attended. John '34 and 
Marian Cress Hockel '32 from Watsonville, 
Calif., were farthest from home; Ruth 
Grundgripper Patterson '34 has been enjoy- 
ing retirement longer than any of her 
. classmates; Estell "Bud" Curry '34 has been 
employed the most number of years; Nor- 
man '34 and Erma Hervig Jensen '37 had the 
youngest grandchild; and Borden Steeves '34 
celebrated his birthday closest to the golden 

Chancellor Robert '49 and Margaret 
Pennington Swanson '48 traveled with me to 
California the latter part of June to visit 
alumni and present alumni updates for three 
get-togethers. On June 23, the Southern 
California alumni chapter was initiated with 
the efforts of Irv Lathrop '50 and Ed Clary 
'56. The graduates and friends met at 
Dimitri's in Anaheim for dinner and a pro- 
gram by Chancellor Swanson. A videotape of 
current activities on the Stout campus was 
also a part of the program. Nancy Nervig 
'81, Glendale, was the most recent graduate 
in attendance, Olga Laurich Bass '37, 
Anaheim, was the earliest graduate and 
Karen Kardin Jordahl '64, Fountain Valley, 
was the birthday celebrant. Karen received 
her M. S . in counseling from Fullerton in May 
and now will pursue a marriage counseling 
license. Steve Grudichak '49, Brawley, was 
the owner of the oldest car, and Myra 
Schlegel Douglass '65, Atascadero, was 
recognized as having traveled the longest 
distance. Coincidentally, Myra inquired if 
Olga had known her mother, Zella Joos 
Schlegel, who was a 1940 graduate of Stout. 
Olga knew her and was the roommate of 
Mable Joos Murdock '37, Myra's aunt. 

The Bay Area alumni chapter met in Los 
Gatos June 24, for a tour of the Novitiate 
Winery, a wine tasting program and a bar- 
beque picnic. Some of the board members 
who planned the outing doubled as chefs — 
Jeff Daniels '80, Pete Berends '82, and 
Barney BS '49, MS '55 and Ruth Schroder 
Harzarian '51. The alumni board increased in 
number at this meeting. The following will 
serve this year: Bill '81 and Margaret Fena 
Coldwell '81, Jeff Daniels '80, Donna Fain 
'81 and Ron Saltzman '81. Barney Hazarian 

was appointed advisor to the alumni board. 
The Chancellor presented a report about cur- 
rent university activities and entertained 
questions about the university, staff and the 
community. The table bouquets from the 
winery were given as remembrances to Edna 
Langseth '33, earliest graduate; Steve 
Balsiger '83, Bernice Hosking BS '82, MS '83 
and Jill Thompson '83 as the most recent 
graduates; Ken and Joyce Fuhrman Hicks '49 
who were celebrating their 34th anniversary; 
and Karen Langballe, a Stout student intern- 
ing at the Westin St. Francis and whose 
hometown is Oslo, Norway. 

The American Home Economics Associa- 
tion national convention was held at the 
Disneyland Hotel in Anaheim. Stout was one 
of the 30 universities that participated in the 
alumni get-togethers in the Grand Ballroom 
of the Disney Hotel June 25. Chancellor and 
Penny Swanson, and Pat and Dave Reisinger 
greeted alumni from the 50 states and one 
international traveler. Ingrid Susan Ahlberg 
'71 was attending the convention from 
Ludwigsburg, Germany. Jane Huntzicker 
'44, Yakima, Wash., was the earliest 
graduate and Mary Hannemen '75, Brown 
Deer, was the most recent graduate. Marilyn 
Drew Peplau, Wisconsin's 1984 Home 
Economics Teacher of the Year, was in 
attendance from New Richmond. Marilyn 
received her B.S. in home economics educa- 
tion in 1973 and a M.S. in 1979. She has . 
taught at New Richmond High School for 11 
years. She was nominated for the family liv- 
ing program she initiated for junior and 
senior students. 

Char TerBeest '72 was the subject of an 
extensive article in "Better Homes and 
Gardens — Country Home." The article 
describes her work with making willow 
baskets and provides a profile of her love for 
the outdodrs. 

Cynthia Johnson '84 was chosen as 
Wisconsin's 37th Alice in Dairyland. A 
dietetics major, she is from Oregon and was 
state FHA-HERO president in 1979-80, and a 
youth representative for the Wisconsin State 
March of Dimes 1981-83.

The Alumni office has heard from another 
class that has had a round robin continu- 
ously since 1936. That's a lot of letters to 
read, write and send off, but the following

Bengtson, Minneapolis; Merle Hill Twesme, 
Arcadia; Agnes Steinke Resell, Siren; Elaine 
Thomas Charlick, Brevard, N.C.; Inez

Sr. Generose Gervais '45, OSF, president, 
Saint Mary's Hospital, Rochester, Minn., was 
among Catholic Health Association officials 
who met with President Ronald Reagan 
recently during their annual Federal Policy 
Institute on Capitol Hill. During the meeting, 

President Reagan thanked the representatives 
of CHA for its leadership in refining the 
federal "Baby Doe" regulations. In turn, 
Reagan was thanked for his leadership in 
upholding many of the values of Catholic 
health care, such as the value of life and the 
dignity of each person. Sr. Gervais was also 
honored during the annual Catholic Health 
Assembly in St. Louis. She is ending her 
term as a member of the Board of Trustees of 
the CHA after serving as vice-chairperson, 
chairperson and speaker of the Membership 

The third annual Alumni golf tournament 
was held Saturday, Aug. 4, at Tanglewood. 
Thirty-four golfers competed for the car, 
enjoyed a picnic after the tournament and 
were awarded prizes for their golfing prow- 
ess. Bob Eggleston '59 came within three feet 
of winning the car, but, alas, the dealer had 
the car back on the lot that evening. Ernie 
Christiansen '53 beat Earl Herring '52 in a 
sudden-death playoff. The golfers receiving 
prizes included Steve Turk and Jackie Moss 
Van Heirseele 72, shortest drive on #1; Joan 
Christiansen, longest drive on #3; Larry 
Braaten BS '36, MS '50 and Teddy Eggleston, 
closest to the pin on #4; Dick Veleke '74, 
longest putt on #6; Al Loew '55, most balls 
in water on #6; and Dick Veleke '74 and 
Joan Christiansen, low gross. The alumnus 
coming the farthest distance to participate in 
the tournament was Bert Mizuha '39 of 
Hawaii, who was also instrumental in 
organizing the first Stout golf team. The 
earliest graduate was Larry Braaten BS '36, 
MS '50, and the most recent graduates were 
Keven Derkowski '83 and Dave Hougland
